What was your relationship status at the time? Single

How would you best classify this hookup? Short fling

Tell us about your PARTNER(S). What did they look like? How well did you know them, had you hooked up before? How/Where did you meet them? How did you feel about them before the hookup? Carlos was a handsome Latin man, fit and muscular with dark hair and a bit taller than me (most men are). He had a goatee as well and was probably around 40. He was working for my neighbor and I had gone up to him to talk since I was a bit lonely at the time and wanted to practice my Spanish a bit. I felt an instant attraction to him and wanted to be with him.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? Some background here. I was single at the time of this hookup and it had been a while since my last boyfriend. I sleep where I want and when I want, and with whom I want, which is a philosophy I have gone by since I was 17. When I am horny I will find a man (or the occasional chick), take them into my bed and fuck them.
About a year and a half ago I found myself suddenly unemployed following a merger with another company. I didn’t look for work right away and decided to do some traveling, but it wasn’t for a few weeks yet at the time and I found myself spending most of my time at home and a lot of time in my pool.
I had seen Carlos a few times working in my neighbor’s yard and I was a bit lonely. I had decided to go talk to him. I forgot I had a bikini on at the time. He didn’t speak a lot of English but I speak fluent Spanish and we had a conversation about him and his work.  Both my neighbour and him were eying me a bit and I liked the attention. I have always liked the attention I get from men.
The next part took me about a week. I made sure to talk to Carlos when I could and was a bit flirty and I caught him watching me in the backyard a few times. I also made sure he got a good look at me sunbathing nude in the back yard the one day. Finally, one morning he knocked on my door and said he couldn’t get me out of his head. It had worked.

What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? I pulled him into my house and started to kiss him right there and we made out. My top came off quick and we ended up on a couch in the living room. He sucked my tits a bit. My preference is to be on top and I finally mounted him and let him inside me. I rode him and he had his hands on my waist but kept grabbing at my tits. I actually had an orgasm first and he did shortly after. He told me he enjoyed being with a white woman and I had to correct him that I was not white and I quickly got the impression this was not a first. Don’t get me wrong, he was eager and enthusiastic and I quite enjoyed myself and needed the release. However, he went back to work shortly after we were done.

How sexually satisfying was this hookup? Somewhat

Did you have an orgasm? Yes, one

Did your partner have an orgasm? Yes, one

What happened AFTER the hookup? How did you feel about it the next day? What are/were your expectations/hopes for the future with this person? How do you feel about them now? Next three weeks we hooked up alot, sometimes as much as three times a day and I quite enjoyed myself. I never expected anything with Carlos nor was I looking for it. This was never more than just sex. As I said, I got the impression this was not a first and that he had hooked up with a lonely wife or someone in proximity to who he was working for before. Looking back now when I am not under a sex fueled cloud, I think he might have been married.
One day he was gone suddenly gone and my neighbour said he had just not shown up for work. Not sure if he was here legally now. I had fun with him and was never looking for more than that with Carlos.
